Finance & Warrant Commission

 

April, 2016

The Finance and Warrant Commission (FinCom) has been busy preparing for the Annual Town Meeting which will be held on Monday, May 2, 2016.  At our Final Public Hearing held on  Monday, March 28, 2016, the FinCom heard from the Annual Town Meeting Warrant Article Sponsors and completed deliberation and voting at that Public Hearing.

We are very pleased to announce that the Town of Westwood Finance and Warrant Commission's 2016 Annual Report and Recommendations for Annual Town Meeting is now available on the website and will be delivered to residents on or about Monday, April 25, 2016.    

(Please find the 2016 FinCom Annual Report in PDF under Media & Documents.)

The Finance and Warrant Commission's 2016 Annual Town Report  (now available in PDF under  the Media & Documents section on this website) will be mailed to residents prior to the Annual Town Meeting on Monday, May 2nd.   In addition to our recommendations on warrant articles, this document contains several summaries which highlight the FY17 approved budget, as well as significant information on the Town's finances. Every effort is made to produce this information as user-friendly as possible so that you can make knowledgeable decisions at the May Annual Town Meeting.  

We hope the information we post on our website is both interesting and of some help in deciding your votes at Town Meeting.  We welcome your comments and suggestions for enhancing our website.

If anyone has topics they would like explored at any of our meetings, we would consider adding them to our agenda. Please respond to: jodonnell@townhall.westwood.ma.us. 

Thank you.
